Striker Glenn Murray has signed for Bournemouth from Crystal Palace. The Premier League sides confirmed the move for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

The 31-year-old scored 47 goals in 125 appearances for Palace and was a key figure in their promotion to the top flight.

The fee was reportedly around £5 million.

“It feels great to finally be here,” Murray told afcb.co.uk.

“I’ve come across the club a lot in my career and it’s been great to see it progress.

“The way the boys play football is very exciting. It’s front-footed and it will be nice to try and get some goals from it.”

Former Carlisle, Rochdale and Brighton striker Murray joined Palace on a free transfer in 2011.

Murray scored 30 goals in Palace’s passage to the playoff final in 2012-13, but missed the promotion due to a serious knee injury.

He spent part of last season on loan with Reading, where he scored eight goals in 18 league games, before returning to Selhurst Park.

Murray scored six goals in six games and seven in 20 appearances on his return to Palace.

Palace took to Twitter to praise Murray, writing “We wish Glenn all the best” and “thank you for all the memories”.

Meanwhile, forward Max Gradel, who signed from St Etienne last month, faces a lengthy spell out with a knee injury sustained against Leicester on Saturday.
